-election defeat plan. this time, of course, it's paul ryan whose post-election future is being leaked about by his supporters who are fairly, clearly, assuming that romney and ryan are about to lose, and they need to think of something else for paul ryan to do because he's not going to be busy as vice president. quote, publicly ryan and his closest allies maintain that momentum is behind the romney/ryan ticket but ryan's biggest boosters realize he probably can write his own ticket, win or lose, on november 6th, this ryan allies spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss private proposals they were preparing for him. if romney loses, ryan will be seen as a leading white house contender in 2016. just like sarah palin was in 2012. for the next few years, democrats would lay traps forcing them to take sides on measures to come back to haunt him during a presidential bid. that's why ryan's biggest boosters are considering whether it wouldn't be better for paul ryan to resign from the house. he could write a book, saving america is a theme often bandied about. or he could teach at a university. day
and paul ryan! and we need them right now. >> political analysts are confused. romney surrogate, fox and friends, tried to get christie to dial it back. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea, nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. i've got a job to do here in new jersey. it's much bigger than presidential politics and i could care less about any of that stuff. i have a job to do. i've got 2.4 million people out of power. i've got devastation on the shore. i've got floods in the northern part of my state. if you think right now i give a damn about presidential politics, then you don't know me. >> talk about a smackdown. yet despite christie -- some can't help but wonder will christie's newfound love for president obama tilt the election obama's way? talkback question for you, will sandy change the election? facebook.com/carolcnn. your responses later this hour. >>> hundreds are rescued in a northern new jersey town. we'll tell you how the city plans to rescue others who are still stranded t
nonstop. vice president is in colorado and paul ryan is holding rallies in pennsylvania, virginia, florida, and ohio. so ohio indeed could be the biggest battleground of the election. the race there is very tight. a just released cnn/orc poll shows obama ahead by just three points, well within the margin of error. an nbc/"wall street journal" poll shows a wider gap with obama leading by six points. president obama is about to speak at a rally in mentor, ohio. he is at least in the building, we understand. and so is our white house correspond dan loathian. the president's schedule is packed today. he isn't just campaigning. he is also keeping a close watch on the storm which he says really is his first priority. >> reporter: that's correct. white house officials saying that president did get updates, briefings overnight. this morning he went to fema headquarters in washington to get a briefing in person, to get a sense of what is taking place with regards to the flooding, the power situation. he had some of his top officials in the room with him. he also spoke via video conference with the
am, mitt rom economy coming here tomorrow where i am and paul ryan coming here today. that's why we're here. listen, mitt romney thinks they can grab pennsylvania away from the democrat, a state the republicans haven't won since 9 1988. >> paul, thanks. randi. >>> new numbers on where things stand in florida. take a look here. this nbc news/"wall street journal/"marist poll. florida is the biggest of all the expected swing state with 29 electoral votes. >>> on the campaign trail in ohio former new york mayor rudy giuliani offered a scathing critique of the president and said president obama should resign. it happened at a rally for mitt romney yesterday. mr. giuliani slammed the administration on a lot of topics. benghazi, others. >> they're real excited today because unemployment didn't go back to 8%. ility 7.9%. they should be ashamed of themselves. the greatest country on earth, the greatest country in the history of the world and our growth is at 1.2%. he should resign! >> the founder and ceo of news corp rupert murdoch is also sounding off on the election via twitter. he blast
that paul ryan's staff went out of their way to stage manager storm photo op at a donation center in wisconsin. plus, he says, quote, the packing was proceeding too quickly and the supporters were given the order to slow down and then to stop to be sure that there was still goods to be packed when ryan entered. when ryan entered? another staged event just like his fiasco at the soup kitchen? earlier this month, paul ryan went to an empty soup kitchen to wash two products that had already been left there for him to clean. empty gestures, photo ops, petty politics. and once again today, mitt romney not answering questions about whether he still wants to privatize fema and cut federal disaster relief. or a working president with a republican governor to get something done and fulfill a basic role of government. take care of people. that's the choice in this election. do we want a country that says, you're on your own when you're in trouble or that we're all in this together and we care for all of us collectively. joining me now is victoria de francesca soto and jonathan capeheart, an
of this campaign. if you count debuke, why when they're not taking anything for granted. and paul ryan, that's his home state. so his edition to the romney ticket has made that reach for the pthd. it's still polling to the president's way. it just shows you how cloesz this fight really is. now the president's closing message, don, a lot of countering the romney themes. romney has been talking about how he's the candidate of change. the president is saying uh-uh, not so fast, that's me. and going back to his old message saying governor romney's party brought gridlock to washington. that's what the president is saying. don't let that candidate and that message suck you in because he insists, he's the candidate change. listen to this. >> we are kountdi they're kount on you to be so worn down that you just give up. you walk away. you leave them in power. in other words, wisconsin, their bet is on cynicism. they think they can outlast you. they figure yeah, these guys may g enthusiastic, but, yeah, overtime, that enthusiasm fades away and we're still here. but wisconsin, see, my bet is on you. my bet i
. along with the economy. democrats have tried to link republicans to paul ryan's plans to turn medicare into a voucher program, something democrats say would be disastrous for seniors. republicans believe they have neutralized that message by arguing obama care hurts seniors by slashing medicare. redistricting will have a big impact, helping republicans. >> for the most part, republicans because they made such overwhelming gains not only in congress but in state legislatures last year, they were able to control the redistricting process in a lot of key states. for example, north carolina, where democrats will probably lose a couple seats this cycle. >> gop gains look likely in districts from north carolina to arkansas, among others. in fact, party operatives say they even put traditional blue states like rhode island and massachusetts into play. democrats are trying hard to unseat gop incumbents in blue states like california, new york, and illinois. and could see gains in maryland and florida. so why do these house races matter? members of congress will have to make big decisions in th
, wisconsin is leaning fairly heavily in president obama's favor. >> reporter: that's right. now, paul ryan has been seen as an asset, obviously, to governor romney and he has been making a whole lot of appearances. i'll tell you, the crowd behind me is getting excited, ashleigh, because air force one is taxing over towards us where president obama is going to be coming out shortly and making his remarks. yes, paul ryan has been an asset to governor romney. it's why some are saying the race here has been pretty tight, although there is a small lead, a consistent lead, for president obama. today we saw "wall street journ journal" nbc news poll, three points up the president is here in wisconsin. yesterday there was a poll in milwaukee, a marquette university poll that had the president up by much more, eight points. you talk to the obama campaign, they'll point to that marquette poll and they'll say it's more accurate. it seems likie internal polls ae in between the two. the bottom line, while he has a lead that is significant, you have to pay attention to it, it's not quite comfortable. tha
at least one more time. paul ryan is here today. that says it all. both campaigns know that this is a very competitive state to the end. the suburbs are the key areas. make this point before i throw it back to you, 1.3 million people have already voted in the state of colorado. i talked to is the secretary of state today, he says that's probably about half of the electorate and says you can still vote until tomorrow. more than 50% of the votes will be cast before election day and they're already starting to count them. we were watching that process in downtown denver. >> are we getting any indication on how the independent voters are moving right now? >> reporter: it's a critical question because this state is roughly evenly divided between democrats, republicans, independents or unaffiliated voters. if you look at our poll, our poll shows a dead heat. and 49% of the independents go for president obama and joe biden, 47% go for governor romney and paul ryan. moderate voters who tend to live in the suburbs, many of them independents, 60% for the president to 38% for governor romney. if you'
the deficit would include cutting spending, and that would likely include fema. and paul ryan released his budget last year, which caused for a 35% cut to fema. >> we'll see if he talks about that tomorrow on the campaign trail. dana bash, appreciate it. we'll be right back. now you don't have to go to a bank to get the things you want from a bank, like no-fee atms, all over the world. free checkwriting and mobile deposits. now depositing a check is as easy as taking a picture. free online bill payments. a highly acclaimed credit card with 2% cash back into your fidelity account. open a fidelity cash management account today and discover another reason serious investors are choosing fidelity.

recovery road rally. everybody's coming. and the sons, paul ryan, paul ryan's wife who we have yet to actually meet, rudy giuliani, a couple olympic medalists, every elected official except he who must not be named in new jersey. sudden plans for a road trip are usually the sign of a pressing need to escape reality. >> is meatloaf going to be there? >> as long as he brings those pipes. >> all right. they should bring chris. this chris christie thing, is it really a big problem for mitt romney? why can't he now campaign with chris christie and be proud of it? >> it is a brig problem. >> i don't get it. that's a problem. that's the problem. >> literally, you have that image of them going like this. >> so what? they need to get over it. >>> up next, the tale of two cities. a line of demarcation separates the manhattan with power from the manhattan completely in the dark. jon stewart offers his take on a divided new york.

and so will his running mate, paul ryan. are they trying to put pennsylvania in play, a move of strength or desperation. they have different answers on that one. >> we are going dig deeper into that later. gloves are off on the campaign trail. let's take a listen. >> in the closing weeks of the campaign, romney is using his talents as a salesman to dress up the very same policies that failed our country so badly. the same policies we have been cleaning up after these past four years and offering them up as change. >> a lot of people are hurting. they don't want to see another four years like the last four. do you want to see four more years with 23 americans struggling for good jobs? >> no! >> he took a break because of superstorm sandy, but now there's a lot of rhetoric. >> here is one reason why. take a look at this. the race is extremely tight right now. here is the national cnn poll. the survey is out over the last week and a half. average them together. it's as close as you can get. look at these numbers, colorado is one of the eight battleground states. a very, very close contest.
that would include fema. and of course his running mate, paul ryan, he released his budget last year and it called for about a 35% cut in fema. that was what his budget proposal showed. >> we'll see if he talks about that tomorrow on the campaign trail. dana bash, appreciate it. we'll be right back. idelity stock screener, you can try strategies from independent experts and see what criteria they use. such as a 5% yield on dividend-paying stocks. then you can customize the strategies and narrow down to exactly those stocks you want to follow. i'm mark allen of fidelity investments. the expert strategies feature is one more innovative reason serious investors are choosing fidelity. now get 200 free trades when you open an account. one is for a clean, wedomestic energy future that puts us in control. our abundant natural gas is already saving us money, producing cleaner electricity, putting us to work here in america and supporting wind and solar. though all energy development comes with some risk, we're committed to safely and responsibly producing natural gas. it's not a dream. ameri
/state partnership, there are some, and i think paul ryan's in this camp, i'm not sure mitt romney is. >> romney said we ought to defund fema, period. >> privatize this, let states do this, let people take care of it on their own, i think we see a real difference and we're going to be fighting over these federal recovery issues for some time to come. as the governor described it, it is a massive job. >> let's talk about this. more pictures from this afternoon, with governor christie looking on. take a look at how he handled this. i wish he'd been doing a lot more of this before. look at how he handled this sort of meat and potatoes government work and how he describes it here. >> what i can promise you is that the federal government will be working as closely as possible with the state and local officials, and we will not quit until this is done. and the directive that i've given and i've said this yesterday, but i will repeat, and i think craig and others who are working with me right now know i mean it, we are not going to tolerate red tape. we're not going to tolerate bureaucracy. and you know, i'
in paul ryan's home state of wisconsin. 51-43. a new quinnipiac/"new york times"/cbs news swing state poll shows president obama leading in ohio with likely voters 50 to 45. a tighter race in virginia. president obama at 49, mitt romney at 47, which is a statistical tie within the poll's 3% margin of error. and in florida that poll has president obama at 48 and mitt romney at 47. another statistical tie. tonight nate silver of the "new york times'" 538 blog forecasts that on november 6th president obama will win 300 electoral college votes and mitt romney will win 238 and president obama's chance of re-election ticked up tonight in nate silver's calculations to 78.4%. and finally, george w. bush has entered the presidential campaign. he did that today when he was dragged into it by his little brother in florida. >> do you honestly think that this president is capable of bringing people together? his entire strategy is to blame others. starting with my brother, of course. basically, he blames every possible thing, rather than having the humility to be able to reach out and define common gro
of them to come vote for our team. paw rye paul ryan and i want to bring real change to america. so some folks are putting aside the demands of daily life and focusing on this campaign. they want to know what the future is going to hold depending on who becomes the next president. who's going to affect their life and their family's life and who is going to affect the country in the way it will make the greatest difference. you can remind them that words are cheap. you can say whatever you want to say in a campaign. but what you can achieve, results, those are earned. those can't be faked. you see, four years ago you could remind them that candidate obama made a number of promises. then go and look at the promises and say how did they do on those? he was going to be a post partisan president. he's been most partisan in dividing -- >> we'll keep an eye on mitt romney's speech in iowa. poppy, that seems like guy problem to have. in des moines and other parts of iowa, the unemployment rate is very low. they can't find workers. but that's also not ideal for them. >> reporter: right. no, it's
talent, your energy, your money. and this is not just about paul ryan and me. it's really about america and the future relief our children. we thank you. and we ask you to stay with us all of the way to victory on tuesday night. all right? >> that was governor romney and an emotional ann romney speaking in colorado just now. i want to thank all of my panel here for their time and their expertise and thoughts. we have a wild three days ahead of us, guys. do we have time to talk to them? we do have time to talk to them. >> that's what we were chanting, three more days. >> i will say, it is exhausting running for president. >> it will be more like four or five days because midnight, 4:00 a.m., wednesday morning, we may very well not know. >> it's my election administration election. it is all going to come down to the arcane rules about challengers and provisional balloting and hanging chads and all that. we may not know on tuesday night. >> you really think that by 10:30, 11:00, we won't be like, okay, write my thing and go to bed by midnight? >> no, sir. you will be hitting refresh on th
? to chris's point, why not have some secondary surrogates, whether it's paul ryan or mrs. romney or the romney boys go to those states and just buying it. i remember that very well. even though, chris, the obama campaign is dismissing the idea romney is seriously competing in these states, should they have sparener to shore up those voti ttleground map, and this has been one of the asmall, narrow . you have battleground polls show you don't want to bleed yourself so much, even with the amount of money both campaigns have, that you actually make it easier for the other side to make inroads. >> i'm out of time but i want to ask you each really, really quickly for your guy, on the democratic side, chris, where are we going to see the president going over the weekend, the last weekend of this campaign? >> that's obvious, ohio, ohio, ohio. >> ohio, ohio, ohio. how about you, robert? where is romney going? >> ohio and most likely he will end his campaign in new hampshire. new hampshire is still very much in play. and maybe hawaii. he might go to hawaii. i heard romney may go to hawaii.
democrats love america just like good republicans love america. >> reporter: as for paul ryan, he took a short halloween detour to his hometown of janesville, wisconsin. taking his kids trick or treating. his daughter dressed as katy perry, an obama supporter. and one of his boys as the grim reaper. the abc news/"washington post" poll shows the race is tied nationally. 49% for mitt romney. 49% for barack obama. but each side seems convinced they're winning. the obama campaign points to the battleground states. all eight of the states where the candidates are campaigning the hardest, the president is either tied or winning. but the romney campaign points to michigan, pennsylvania, and minnesota -- three states thought to be solidly democratic, but where obama is now playing defense. the president, back on the campaign trail today. going to wisconsin, colorado and nevada. mitt romney will be campaigning in virginia. george, you can expect both of them to be campaigning virtually nonstop between now and tuesday. >> no question about it. they're going to be focusing on the white battlegrou
because he and paul ryan have a plan for day one to get jobs. i mean, this president -- >> i was asking you about the -- i was asking you specifically about the plan for the jobs for the auto industry, and i do want to mention, too, even chrysler's chief executive officer has debunked this ad. the jeeps will not be made in china. he said certainly not at the expense of the american workers. christianler -- >> he said -- i wanted to clear that up. >> that's what the ad points out that that is -- that they are doing that. he obviously we want to have more cars made here. we want to have more trade. >> it's not at the expense of american jobs is the point. it's not at the expense -- >> there will be -- well, this president has lost. there are fewer jobs today in all -- in pretty much every industry under this president. unemployment has been stagnant. he said if we spend $1 trillion that we would have a 5.2% unemployment, and instead it went up this week, 7.9, higher than when the president came into office. the president has failed on all of his metrics. he said he'd turn the economy arou
, also did that in his convention speech. but if you look at what his budget and paul ryan's budget would do, it would decimate nasa. he also had a great story about a woman with a heartwrenching story about a woman with a kid with down syndrome. guess what? if he repeals obama care, that child will be in danger, because they will no longer be able to get insurance coverage because of that preexisting condition. and single moms, yes, his heart goes out to single moms, but he also wants to take away their free preventative care and single moms need it more than anybody else some those are the policies that really don't jive with his positive words. that's what the obama campaign will point out. >> okay, care to rebut? >> look, i think most of us are still reeling from sandy. we have been. and in these last two or three days staying away from these kind of attacks. i'm not sure maria got the memo, but i did. and you know, i think that the tone that both mitt romney and president obama have taken -- as reresumed campaigning is one of offering their proposals, offering their ideas. and by the
, democrat and independent swing voters. >> mitt romney and paul ryan count on your vote? >> thank you. >> reporter: the campaigns are doing whatever it takes to get out the vote. millions of phone calls. canvassing neighborhoods. >> going to knock on doors. one more door, one more vote. >> reporter: republican plit cap consultant says they must win over the suburban voters. >> that's why the swing voters in jefferson and arapacho counties are up for grabs. as socially liberal as they are on abortion and gay marriage, for instance, first and foremost, they're most i think concerned about the economy. >> look at you riding the big bike. >> reporter: he opened the green mountain sports bike shop 15 years ago but in 2010 he says sales dropped from a million dollars a year to $500,000. he struggled to pay bills. did you think you're about to go under? >> oh, yeah. one foot on a banana peel and one in the grave. something like that. >> reporter: business has bounced back a little but corky doesn't feel secure yet. when you make your decision on who to vote for, when's this going to boil dow
and paul ryan. and we need them right now. right now i'm much more concerned about preventing any other loss of life, getting people to safe places. then we'll worry about the election. the election will take care of itself. i've spoke to the president three times yesterday. he's been incredibly supportive and helpful to our state. not once did he bring up the election. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea. nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. i've got a job to do here in new jersey that's much bigger than presidential politics. and i could care less about any of that stuff. i have a job to do. i have 2.4 million people out of power. i've got devastation on the shore. i've got floods in the northern part of my state. if you think right now i give a darn about presidential politics, then you don't know me. >> yeah. he's a strong, strong guy. only an hour ago after his tour with the president he's got a great working relationship with the president. they've been working incredibly closely ov
